We Made It


We made it to Savannah! I think packing and moving top my list of least favorite activities, but we pushed through with the help of my mom -- we desperately needed an extra set of hands to seal boxes and hold baby. Now we're settling in, searching for a home and enjoying being so close to family. I'm excited about our life in the lowcountry and seeing what unfolds next.

Family Photos at Joshua Tree


During our California vacation, we stayed at Joshua Tree National Park for one night. I'd come across these beautiful family photos a while back, so I wanted to take some of our own during our brief stay. Despite the hot sun, a rattlesnake sighting (eep!), and Harrison getting a face full of sand, we managed to capture a few sweet moments. It seemed fitting to share them today since I'll be enjoying my first Mother's Day this weekend. I'm so happy to be a part of our fun, little family. Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful women out there!

The Road Leads Back to You


We're back from California, and I can't wait to share more about our trip, but first, a life update. After just over a year in Austin -- a very eventful year -- we've decided to move yet again. We're headed to Savannah, Georgia! It's my hometown, the place where Jonah and I got married, and all of my family lives there. Things came together quickly as they tend to do once we step out in faith, so the next couple of weeks will be filled with packing and moving. I never thought I'd have the chance to live in Savannah again, since we've opted for big cities throughout our marriage, but a baby -- and remote work opportunities -- can change everything. We're excited to be near family and settle in for a while, and I'm excited to rediscover my home. Hope you'll stick around for our next adventure!

California, Here We Come


We're flying to L.A. today for a nice long California vacation. We have lots of friends to introduce to Harrison, there's a new baby girl we get to meet, and we're just excited to relax, check out some shops and food trucks and enjoy the sunshine. Follow along on instagram if you like. Have a great weekend!

Food Tees

 

I think our little family of three could use a set of these shirts. Next on the list, donut tees.

Frocktails: Girly Grapefruit


For this frocktail, I've teamed up with Q Drinks. Their sodas are delicious, made with natural ingredients and perfect for adding a little fizz and flavor to cocktails. I stirred up a GG Thiz, a tasty, slightly savory cocktail using thyme simple syrup, lime juice, gin and sparkling grapefruit soda. 

It's a perfect shade of pale pink, so I paired it with this sweet floral dress from Gap. It's casual but cute, has a flattering flared skirt and deal-sealing pockets. A drink and a dress fit for spring!

GG Thiz
Recipe courtesy of Q Drinks

2 oz. gin
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. thyme syrup
6 oz. Q Grapefruit or other sparkling grapefruit soda
Lime wedge or slice for garnish

To make thyme syrup, dissolve 1 cup of granulated sugar in 1 cup of water, while heating to a simmer in a small sauce pan. Once simmering, remove from heat, add 5 thyme sprigs and let steep for 30 minutes. Strain and cool.

Fill a highball glass with ice, pour in the gin, fresh lime juice and thyme syrup. Top with Q Grapefruit and garnish with a lime.

Dress found here. See past frocktail posts.

Teething Toys


We're at a phase now where everything Harrison gets his hands on goes straight to his mouth -- so we may as well give him something cute to gnaw on. These teethers from Little Sapling Toys are handcrafted from maple, naturally anti-bacterial, and I love the simple, modern look.
